Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cut Veteran Running Back

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have enjoyed tremendous success over the past three seasons with Tom Brady under center, but now, it looks like the re-tool has officially begun as the organization prepare for life after the GOAT.

With their salary cap issues, it was expected that they would move on from several players this off-season, with the main name continuing to come up being running back Leonard Fournette, and today, the team officially announced that he will be release when the new league year begins on March 15th.

They still have plenty of work to do if they want to get under the salary cap and be a competitive team in 2023, but with the emergence of Rachaad White in 2022, it was clear that the team had other plans at running back, and now Fournette will look for a role as a veteran elsewhere.
